The City of White Rock is hosting a public information session and workshop on Jan. 20 to gather input on how to spend up to $13 million in community amenity contributions (CACs), once they are collected.

Some projects the City of White Rock is putting forward for input are:

· Enhancements to White Rock’s Pier
· Affordable housing opportunities
· Community Complex–administrative and public space
· Waterfront parks
· Park Improvements

· Funicular
· Theatre Facility or Convention Centre with community access

White Rock Mayor Darryl Walker
“Community amenity contributions allow the City of White Rock to ensure that there is a high quality of life for residents. I encourage everyone to provide your input into how the City should spend an expected $13 million in community amenity contributions on projects such as park improvements, affordable housing and enhancements to White Rock’s Pier.”
